Operator: Bradford C.T. Fleet No: 601 Registration No: KY 8204 Chassis: AEC 661T Chassis No: 661T.040 Body: English Electric H32/28R New: 1934 In service: 21-Nov-1934 Rebodied: Brush H30/26R 1944 Withdrawn: 31-Aug-1959 Disposal: Hornby
Additional information: When compared to the previous trolleybuses bought by Bradford, the English Electric six-wheelers, these must have seemed the height of modernity, although it must be borne in mind that the solitary AEC Q had already been running for some months!
Notable features are the substantial trolley gantry with the circuit breakers mounted on the roof. Also, due to the single skin roof the power cables have to be external and come down the central front pillar. Roof design is one area that did progress with later trolleybuses, with the final Weymann-bodied BUTs probably being the neatest of all.
